Bear with me. I have a number of years TA service which in total (having left a couple of times) equate to over 12 years. I am a Corporal (TA) and a university graduate employed in a field directly related to my TA role. I achieved Cat 1 at AOSBTA Briefing and passess at Mod 2 and 3 of the TACC which at 35 made me very much the old and not so bold. Due to work commitments however, I have had to cancel by Main Board and put off Mod 4. My civilian employer is supportive of the TA generally however huge pressures on manning have caused this sudden change of heart. In essence, 3 weeks at RMAS for Mod 4 is difficult for the foreseeable future. 2 weeks would be far easier to negotiate. Can a Corporal apply for a LE Commission? I have read sources which say that ordinarily, a soldier should be a S/Sgt or C/Sgt with at least two CRs at SNCO rank.
